4 Simple Art and Craft Projects for Kids

This is my entry to Techie She’s Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 9. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Lainy of Lainy’s Musings.

The past few days have been very busy. The first quarterly exams of the kids are due this week and next week and there are some projects that they have to finish and submit.  I have been helping them in their projects and preparing them for the exams. In addition, I am completing some online freelancing jobs so I did not really have enough time to do any musing for writing a blog post.

Anyway, while sorting through tons of photos that Kristel needs for her project, I came across these photos of the craft and art projects that my kids did last school year. Let me just share these with you.

The first two are Janel's art work. These are her water color paintings. Don't ask me what they are. I don't know either but I really like the color.  Can you tell me what they look like? She likes to paint after school and I like some of the outcomes of her water color painting effort.

The next photo is Kristel's bean mosaic project. Their teacher gave them a picture of a fish and asked them to glue different types of beans (mungbean, soybeans, black beans and lima beans?) onto the picture. It looks pretty.

The next two are Emmuel's project. The first two also uses water color plus other mediums. In the first project, they used thread. I think what they did was to dip a string in water color, place it on the paper while holding one end of the string, press another paper on top then pull the string. It made this artistic water color effect. I remember having done this while in school as well.

This one is called fruit and vegetable printing. They cut up different fruits and vegetables, make artistic cuts with the help of a grown-up, then dip it in water color and stamp it onto the paper. Emmuel made nice designs using carrots, "ampalaya" (bitter gourd) and potatoes.  If you want to personalize wrapping papers, using water color can definitely be a good material to use.

I have other photos of their projects but I will share them on another post.

Those are stunning works of art! Makes it hard to believe that kids made them. My daughter gets bored at home, so that's a good activity to keep her busy.
